Got Milk? Got Kids? Got Snacks?

I have a kiddo.

Of course, I think he’s the best there is, and hopefully, you think yours is, too.  You have to be wrong though, as hello?  We already established that MINE s the best.  And this is MY blog, so, I win.

Seriously though, we should all be so proud of our children.  It’s a different world they are growing up in, and it’s bound to be tough.  Social media allows no secrets, computers and handhelds rule the schools.  It’s a very advanced society, and our little ones are hanging right in there.

Schools are trying their best to keep up as well, but again – that’s a hard thing to do.  Budgets are tight, teachers feel overworked and underpaid – and truthfully, it’s a thankless job.  Have you been to your child’s school for lunch?  No joke, I am ready to leave within 5 minutes of getting there.  Loud, snotty faced, touchingallthethings animals.  No thank you.  No, no, no.

So where am I going with this?

Well, I was approached by Mom It Forward and Got Milk to share some exciting information with you.  As it turns out, the Got Milk folks have got something up their sleeves.

Now that the kids are back in school, got milk? goodies is launching the Best in Class campaign to celebrate deserving classrooms and help fight child hunger in the process. Nearly 16 million children in the U.S. live in food-insecure households, where they are unable to consistently access enough nutritious food necessary for a healthy life (gasp – what a staggering figure). Many of their parents rely on food banks to get the food they need to provide for their family. One of the most requested nutrition staples is milk, though it is rarely donated.

Got Milk is asking teachers, parents and other student stakeholders to submit a classroom that they believe deserves a got milk? party via a designated Facebook tab. At the end of the campaign period (September 28 through October 9), and will select five classrooms to receive a got milk? party in a box, which will include decorations, branded items, snack products and a gift card to a local grocery store where they can purchase milk. Even better – for every submission they receive, they will make a donation to The Great American Milk Drive, which provides milk to families in need through Feeding America.

I was able to sample the line of Got Milk Snacks – and they are delicious! Seven loved them…all of them!  They are perfect for encouraging additional milk consumption for those picky kids you may have…we could all use a little more milk in our diets! The snack bars, cookies and wafer spirals come in a variety of flavors and are tasty treats while on-the-go.  The line includes a variety of classic, organic, non-GMO, gluten-free and vegan offerings. You can find out more about the products at www.gotmilksnacks.com.
